LeBreton Flats Condo grows

The first phase of the first building on LeBreton Flats is towards the left. It includes a six storey podium building of yellow brick with a seven storey glass tower above. The right most wall of the podium was partially unfinished, in order to attach the second phase.

The podium portion of the second phase has been poured. Six storeys high, it will be clad in yellow brick like phase one. Windows and exterior walls are being put in place. Plumbing drains have been installed on the first two floors. There will be a seven floor tower on top of this podium, to be located at the end of the building just past the crane.

  1. Thanks for the update. I am not a fan of this development. It would be lovely to be proved wrong, but I think this thing is going to be an eyesore when all is said and done.

  2. It already is an eyesore. It has to be one of the ugliest buildings ever erected in Ottawa.

  3. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It is perfect for the flats and it's history. It brings the old(brick element) and the new(glass and steel) together in an exciting architectural statement.
